Theses guys are great. They don't do a repair if it doesn't need it. I had a muffler pipe fall off and they put on just another pipe rather than replace everything like some places do (like franchise muffler shops!!!) Once I had a tight timeline for a repair and when they didn't have it done on time, the mechanic let me use his truck to go to my meeting! And it was a nice truck! They always show me the part they replaced and tell me how bad the repair was or wasn't. Since they are in the neighborhood, I can stop by with a stupid question and they always answer it. The computer in the shop is dirty and old, the phone is black and has a long cord, there is no vm, you wait in line to talk to the guy when there are others picking up their car, the shop is dirty and cluttered with stuff...all a sign to me of a great shop!!! And my mechanic recommended his chiropractor and now I don't have headaches as much, especially when I get a bill for something done on my 12 year old Honda!!!

This is a real, dirty, greasy shop with guys who know the business inside and out and will give you the honest lowdown on your car.

I have had awesome service from Clair's. They are an old fashioined neighborhood garage. They are not afraid to tell it like it is. They will find the right parts for what you want and need. They are always fun even when dispensing bad news about your car. They give good sound advice.

They are the greasy spoon of auto repair. They care about the customer, the car, and how the job is done. The shop is well worn and lived in. Dale and his staff are fair, professional, and honest, and usually dispense the news, good or bad, with humor. Often, Dale is able to provide safe and reliable loaner cars for clients with major jobs. I would even recommend them to my good friends. There is no better neighborhood shop around.

I trust Dale with any car repair. I know that he won't suggest anything unnecessary. I may have to pay a little extra, but it is definitely worth it.
